After carving your pumpkin this year, save the seeds! These little buggers are full of nutrients and can add a nice crunch to a salad or oatmeal. Another option is to roast them and eat them alone as a snack. Delicious!
2 oz of pumpkin seeds gives you about 19 grams of protein and 240 calories. These yummy seeds are also surprisingly rich in Iron, Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Manganese, Niacin, Thiamin, and Folate. Pumpkin seeds are not only a good source of protein but fat as well.
